- Does it suck? You bet Jurassic sucks! 6/14/2020 12:00:00 AM by featurecreatureshow
Only way this T-rex is going to kill you is by boring you to death. The concept is interesting, 3-d printed dinosaurs but with how cheaply this movie was made I highly doubt they could have afforded an actual 3-d printer. Also the movie just ends, like build up to nothing, it tries to leave the audience asking for more when we're more than willing to say, "no thanks, I've seen more than enough..."
- Killer t Rex cloned 7/10/2015 12:00:00 AM by arpinnock
This is a British flick that isn't actually that bad.
A top secret scientist clones a T-Rex with a 3d printer in controlled conditions and it kills some people.
Not a big cast, so don't go into this expecting a lot of action or seeing Rex much or blood
But, the script isn't bad, acting a bit shaky, effects are basic and photography actually quite good.
It kept me wanting to watch until the end and not turn off so that was plus.
The films starts well and then we get the credits.
Then it starts to get very slow.
It builds up eventually and the end is very abrupt.
The reporters accent seems to change in every scene and where a gun comes from in the UK and in this situation seems very out of place.

Every once in a while, a movie will come along where you have to admire the people who made it - for whatever reason they made it - and you have to ask yourself.
Why would they make this and who on Earth would do such a thing?
When your dinosaur action packed movie consists of 4 lead players and 2 supporting players and a budget of about $120, you begin to question the meaning of life - and of course, this unsolved crime in movie making history.
With the massive 120 $ budget, you can rent a smoke machine, a car garage with a metal roll door, 2 blue warehouse lights and a red gel which goes over a lamp to turn the light red . You also can create a mindless simplistic software program for 2 year old children and buy a silicone dinosaur mask and a painters suit and dust masks.
That should give you enough change back to buy the lunch for the crew and cast of chocolate bars and water and you still might have a bit of change left to get a coffee for the producer of this disaster.
Scary? No.Thrilling? No.Scientific? No.Dramatic? Romantic? Comedic? Adventurous?
You expect too much in life if you expect anything like that. Keep wishing.
It's abysmal in it's own and it;s entire design, production and marketing is laughable at best.
- A killer dinosaur film that is not that killer 9/11/2018 12:00:00 AM by TheLittleSongbird
Was not expecting much from 'KillerSaurus'. It just sounded terribly derivative to the point of being a blatant rip off, the cover/poster looked cheap and like something you'd find advertised for a SyFy or Asylum film, it had a low rating and the reviews were less than promising. So in all honesty was expecting something terrible.
Seeing 'KillerSaurus' with an open mind and fairness intended, it turned out to be not near as terrible as expected. At the same time, didn't find it a particularly good film either. Just for the record, am somebody who hates being critical and is more often than not encouraging and aims to be balanced and tries to evaluate rather than completely gushing or bashing, so will always severely object to being called an armchair critic/expert that is thrown around a lot immaturely.
There are positives. There is colour and atmosphere in the setting and some slickness in some of the shots.
Music is not over-bearing, variety-less or monotonous, even when not being exactly memorable.
Occasionally there is the odd thrill, but that's too far and between.
Conversely, the limited budget shows in particularly the not always very well organised editing and the ropy effects. The dinosaur doesn't steal the show as much as it should and its contribution is not particularly memorable or well used, due to the lack of genuine suspense and horror and its viciousness downplayed too much.
Human characters are underwritten and have little development or endearing personality with frustrating and illogical decisions and behaviours. The acting is very wooden with no exception, nobody looks comfortable.
Also found too much of the dialogue on the wrong side of dumb and cheesy, complete with some soapy moments, and that it didn't flow very well. Parts are too silly, others take themselves too seriously that it becomes dreary. The film is extremely derivative, interesting premise with far too over-familiar execution that has nothing new.
Lack of imagination and suspense also hurts the film, too much evokes cringing and the thrills are sporadic, with a lot of predictability and contrivance. It also tries to throw in too much and some of it holds little if any relevance. The pace is frequently dull and the ending is too hasty and unresolved. The direction felt like they were not in control of the material and not at ease with the genre.
Overall, weak. 3/10 Bethany Cox
- A wholly unimpressive and troublesome genre effort 10/8/2019 12:00:00 AM by kannibalcorpsegrinder
Struggling after leaving a secret project, a researcher haunted by the tragic accident that ended the project returns to the site to get some closure, but when she learns that the Tyrannosaurus Red they created is still alive they try to get out of the building alive before it gets to them.
For the most part, this one was a rather troublesome effort. One of the biggest aspects of this one is the overall setup of the film. The start of the project, consisting of coordinating research on the creation of artificial human limbs and organs through grafting strands of DNA to make these organs, is a wholly useful and original setup to start one of these films with. The whole series of double-crosses here as to the overall purpose of the experiment by the various agencies coming into play here gives this some solid twists and turns is quite an enjoyable storyline for this kind of low-budget effort. There's also a rather strong feeling throughout here of how appropriately this one stretches its low-budget make-up for its good. The simplistic storyline here that keeps everything in one location with minimal outside influences on the film serves it well, and with the small cast in this setting, there's some fun here in seeing how things play out. That also extends to the use of the giant dinosaur which is decidedly obvious about its puppet nature from the beginning due to the immobility and inflexible nature of the beast that becomes obvious the second it's on-screen yet becomes quite enjoyable for being a practical effect utilizing its budget. These here are what manage to hold this one up. There are a few major problems with this one, and they all tend to revolve around the films' budget limitations. There's nothing at all that happens in the film here since there's nothing in the budget to have anything go on or go anyplace with so few locations in the film. This one can't afford action so it replaces that with utterly endless scenes featuring the three of them discussing the exploits of the experiment and what happened at the end, reducing the dino action to just a few minor minutes at the very end. Then the film seemingly ends without any kind of resolution or payoff due to the film's lack of budget, so without much dino action or gore, there's not a whole lot to this one.
